The Hive World of Anfair is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Planetary Governor Alexio Acilius with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 7.539 billion Anfairians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sector Administratum. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Anfairian economy, worth a remarkable 1,828 trillion Aquila Pieces a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 242,525 Aquila Pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials frown on anything more technologically advanced than an abacus, there's nothing more rock-and-roll than absolute sobriety, spiritual leaders preach that the poor are being punished for their sins, and the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anfair's national animal is the Two-headed Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperial Faith.

Anfair is ranked 256,336th in the world and 4,338th in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 6.59 prayers per hour.
